Ultra-ATA DMA 133/100/66 IDE Hard Drive Ribbon Cable with 80-conductor
3 connectors (Controller and Drive Connections)
Supports ATA 33/66/100/133 Mbps transfer speed
Use to connect up to two IDE devices such as Hard Disks, CD ROM,
CD-RW, DVD ROM, DVD-RW, ZIP, Jaz and other 40pin IDE devices to the IDE
controller on the motherboard
Measures approximately 17 3/4" (45cm) long tip-to-tip
As long as your hard drive is an Ultra DMA 66, 100, or 133 model,
your system will be able to transfer data from/to your hard drive up to its
full potential using this cable.
If you do not have an 80-conductor IDE cable or that the hard drive
is an older standard IDE hard drive, then the data transfer speed will fall
back to the maximum speed of 33MB/second.
80-conductor IDE cable allows faster data
transfer than the original 33MB/s limit of the
standard IDE cable because each line is wrapped
around by a ground line to reduce data noise, thus
enabling faster data transfer rate -- up to 133MB/s.
